To test the walls and floor for dryness there is a standard test.
Tape a 24” square of aluminum foil onto the surface to be tested.
It must be sealed air tight; left in place 24 hours.
When checked, if the surface of the foil is wet (sweaty), you have a humidity problem in the basement air.
Then remove the foil and look at the surface of the concrete.
If it’s damp, compared to the surounding surface it will look darker, then you have a potential leaker.
